Twitter is really dumb and everyone should delete their accounts.
I wrote a different piece on why,
so let's just accept that premise. OK, well deleting seems scary because many
people have spent years posting on Twitter with tons of original content and
photos and whatever. The idea of deleting all of that just to spite Twitter is
pretty extreme. But Twitter doesn't own your data—you do! So take it back.
In this post, I'm learning as I go with Twitter API and hope to accomplish the
Get access to Twitter API fuck it
Use Twitter API to download all my old tweets and photos just scrape it
- Delete all tweets from my Twitter account
- Bonus: put the content formerly known as tweets on my own web site
So let's get started and see how this unfolds.
I've been kind of slammed with work. I plan to redesign undefined very
soon... right now I have a review of the undefined posted here.
You probably have no idea what that means. Anyway, the new site should look
similar to that and be advanced to a new level of standards compliance. And
there will actually be content.
It will probably be stuff for geeks though since I am now a full time computer
nerd. So probably no more videos of crazy shit, although you can still get the
final Scream Team video here. (37 megabytes).
Unfortunately, I doubt I'll ever be coming back to undefined. Too much has
changed. I never expected to be making money out here. I never expected to enjoy
my job. But the unlikely happened: I have a reason to stay, and my family is
following me out here.
Just a news flash. It's been so long I doubt anyone reads this old site.
